Tressler LLP is proud to support the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (“NAPABA”)’s Stand Against Hate initiative. We join more than 50 law firms and associations in denouncing the anti-Asian hate, violence and racism related to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Unfortunately, the emergence of the coronavirus has led to an increase in acts of hate and discrimination targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. The legal community stands united against hate. The current situation calls for unity and support—not acts of division and words that sow fear…” said NAPABA President Bonnie Lee Wolf in a recent press release. “…We encourage other bar associations, law firms, and organizations to join us in denouncing discrimination. We stand together. We stand against hate.”
NAPABA reports that the FBI has warned about a surge in anti-Asian hate crimes related to the coronavirus. Numerous community organizations have documented that acts of discrimination and bias are increasing, including incidents involving stereotypes and xenophobic language.
Tressler stands alongside the mission of NAPABA and have added our name to the signatories in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. To join us in this fight, visit:
